Sugar Cookies.....again

Since everybody is answering the "call" for different sugar cookie recipes, I thought I better add mine. I actually received this from a co-worker mine ("A"). Don't be fooled...even though there is not sour cream...they are quite soft. -Matti

Preheat to 350

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 t. vanilla
3 cups flour
1/2 t. salt
1 t. baking soda

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, then vanilla, then gradually add flour, salt and baking soda.
Put dough into ziplock bag and refrigerate for 2 hoursor overnight.

Roll out and cut into shapes of choice. I put them on the pan in the fridge for 15 minutes before baking in order to better maintain their shape.
Bake 9-10 minutes.
Cool completely before frosting.

1/2 cup softened butter
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
1/3 - 1/2 cup EVAPORATED milk
4 cups powdered sugar

Combine all to desired consistency. Should be thin enough to spread, but still look smooth and glossy. Icing will harden a little if allowed to sit, and then you can used a pastry bag for more decorating.
